Tom,

In the case of those small parts, I would do the polishing myself (as in YOU). Most plating shops don't deal in parts that small. Things like th at are pretty easy to polish yourself. The only thing is you will have t o have the old chrome stripped off before begining the polishing stage. If you hand that stuff to a plater as it is now, you will probably be ra ther shocked at what they would charge you. If you can figure a way to h old each piece while you polish it, you will save a boatload of money. T he polishing could be done with a Dremel tool or standard die grinder wi th the proper buffs and such.
